Meryl Streep To Star In HBO Films' Master Class
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.11.2014



Coming Soon reports that director Mike Nichols (The Graduate, Angels in America) will direct HBO Films' Master Class, based on the Tony Award-winning play by Terrence McNally. Meryl Streep will star while McNally will adapt his own work for the film.

HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said: "We are delighted to welcome back the incomparable Mike Nichols and the gifted Meryl Streep, whose collective brilliance shone on HBO with 'Angels in America' almost ten years ago. Terrence McNally's riveting play about the iconic Maria Callas is the perfect platform for these two consummate talents."

Nichols added: "It is a terrific play written with awareness of a great artist's process and it will be one great artist playing another."

The film begins production early next year. Nichols, Streep and Celia Costas will be executive producing. The original play was created in 1995 and starred Zoe Caldwell.

Here's a synopsis: "Master Class" was inspired by the legendary master classes that operatic great Maria Callas gave in the early '70s at the Julliard School. Amidst these classes with her hand-picked students, the indomitable Callas challenges her pupils while giving insight into the nature of her art and revealing the highs and lows of her storied life with passion, humor and deep emotion.
